Evolutionary relationships among pathogenic Candida species and relatives
TLDR
Small subunit rRNA sequences have been determined for 10 of the most clinically important pathogenic species of the yeast genus Candida and for Hansenula polymorpha and species of several other genera appear to bear specific relationships to members of the genuscandida. Expand
PRASINOPHYTES FORM INDEPENDENT LINEAGES WITHIN THE CHLOROPHYTA: EVIDENCE FROM RIBOSOMAL RNA SEQUENCE COMPARISONS 1
TLDR
Results of neighbor‐joining and maximum parsimony phylogenetic analyses demonstrate at least two independent prasinophyte lineages defined by N. olivacea/P. Expand
Mutations of the flavin-containing monooxygenase gene (FMO3) cause trimethylaminuria, a defect in detoxication.
TLDR
It is shown that mutations in the human flavin-containing monooxygenase isoform 3 gene ( FMO3) impair N -oxygenation of xenobiotics and are responsible for the trimethylaminuria phenotype. Expand
ALGAE CONTAINING CHLOROPHYLLS a + c ARE PARAPHYLETIC: MOLECULAR EVOLUTIONARY ANALYSIS OF THE CHROMOPHYTA
TLDR
Only tubular, tripartite mastigonemes (flagellar hairs) characterized all studied taxa of chromophytes/oomycetes as a monophyletic assemblage. Expand
Comparisons of nuclear-encoded small-subunit ribosomal RNAs reveal the evolutionary position of the Glaucocystophyta.
TLDR
Maximum likelihood, maximum-parsimony, and neighbor-joining phylogenetic analyses show that the Glaucocystophyta is a relatively late-diverging monophyletic assemblage within the "crown" group radiation that forms a sister group to cryptophyte algae. Expand
Trimethylaminuria is caused by mutations of the FMO3 gene in a North American cohort.
TLDR
It is concluded that one common mutation and an increasing number of private mutations in individuals of different ethnic origins cause TMAuria in this cohort of individuals ascertained in North America, defined by a reduction of TMA oxidation below 50% of normal with genotype-phenotype correlations.

MOLECULAR EVOLUTIONARY ANALYSIS OF THE CHROMOPHYTA
TLDR
Only tubular, tripartite mastigonemes (flagellar hairs) characterized all studied taxa of chromo- phytes/oomycetes as a monophyletic assemblage. Expand
Phylogenetic placement ofAthelia bombacina, Aureobasidium pullulans, andColletotrichum gloeosporioides inferred from sequence comparisons of small-subunit ribosomal RNAs
TLDR
Complete nucleotide sequences of the small-subunit ribosomal RNA (16 S-like rRNA) coding regions from Athelia bombacina, Aureobasidium pullulans, and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides were determined and found to be related more closely to Neurospora crassa and Podospora anserina than it is to the ascosporogenous yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

ERRATA
TLDR
The article "Algae containing chlorophylls a + C are polyphyletic: Molecular evolutionary analysis of the Chromophyta" was published in the December 1992 issue ofEvolution. Expand
